PS Direct Recent PS5 Stock Drop Frustrates Many Stuck in Queue

PS Direct opened its PS5 restock queue a few moments ago and the experience was less than desirable for some gamers.

PlayStation Direct has been offering more PS5 stock recently.

Restocks from Sony have been more common and efficient.

Some of these restocks are being handled in an invite-only fashion, making things a lot smoother for customers.

Even regular restocks have a queue system. This system makes things smoother than what customers experience with other retailers.

Unfortunately, this recent PS Direct PS5 stock drop was a less than ideal experience according to gamers.

One particular post on Twitter suggested that many people were receiving this error because they used an invitation link that did not belong to their accounts.

This would make sense as a measure to keep scalpers away from PS Direct’s PS5 stock.

After so many complaints, a bunch of lucky gamers also rejoiced because they were finally able to get their consoles.

I was down to 8 minute wait time and then the time started to go back up eventually back over an hour estimated wait.
